COP on the Hill

Stories from the week of March 13, 2020

A funny thing happened on the way to CPAC: I received info this AM that a guy I shook hands and chatted with for several minutes has tested positive for the CV. I am still quite certain my cold was just that. Know that I am 100% back, road the pony yesterday, lifted weights and rode my bicycle for 90 minutes. It has been 16 days since the handshake. I am fine.

I know you guys worry about me. If my health changes, I’ll let you know.

Wardrobe Change: in consultation with my mentor I have decided that I will only wear my T-shirt to Congress, unless there is a very formal occasion. The impact of the shirt the past 18 months has been over-whelmingly positive. On an average day a 1-200 hundred will read it and a few ask why. The issue of marijuana prohibition is nearly over and they are well-represented now by 11 other full-time lobbyists on the Hill. I will again be the Lone Ranger with my Heroin Shirt and work on the macro policy of Modern Prohibition.

PS: Wearing the jacket, CMan Evans and I were waiting for the crosswalk to turn green. He asked why legalize heroin. We ended up having an xcl chat outside of the Longworth House Bldg. Git R Dun!
